Triumph and Tragedy

Meet Leanne and her father Bob.. Last April 2013 Leanne (17yrs old)was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, her battle has been long and after surgery and chemo treatment's she was given news in December that she is on the road to recovery. Sadly Leanne can never have a child of her own, cancer took that away,which she mourn's for but is thankful to be here to live her life.The family celebration was short lived because a few days later the family was given news that Bob had cancer, terminal cancer, so rare that the mayo clinic could only give minimal information as to what could be done to help him. Bob like Leanne has been a fighter every step of the way, but sadly he is losing his battle. The family is in dire need of help financially as Bob has not worked as his cancer progressed rapidily, he is fighting for his life as I post this today. They need help for medical bills, and to keep their home. Bob is very ill and they are doing all they can at this time for him, but many radiation and chemo treatment's have greatly effected his body.Doctor's aksed what Bob's wishes are today, his family is with him and staying at his side. This has been a severe strain on the family having 2 family member's within a year to be struck with cancer.As you see in the picture what a difference a year makes in one families lives. Please help if you can, your donation's are truly appreciated as well as needed.

Thank you for your time, and god bless
